The Importance of Magnesium

Blog > Nutrition

Magnesium is one of the minerals which is essential for health due to the different functions it performs in the body. The lack of it can cause various complications and diseases, so it is vital to ensure adequate intake. Scientific institutions establish that adult men should consume a daily amount that ranges between 400 and 420 milligrams, while for women, that figure reduces to between 310 and 320 milligrams. For this, there are a series of foods that stand out for their magnesium contribution. Its deficiency is a fact that can become very common and is related to problems such as cardiovascular diseases or increased glucose levels.

Health Benefits

As we have just seen, this mineral plays an essential role in the body, as evidenced by science in various studies. These researches claimed that this mineral helps regulate the heartbeat, as it helps to relax the muscle fibers of this organ, thus compensating for the stimulating effect that calcium performs. Also, the consumption of more than 100 milligrams a day contributes to reducing the possibility of suffering a heart attack by 7% and heart failure by 22%, as demonstrated by some scientific analysis, which observed more than 40 studies with more than one million people involved. 

It is also important to note that it favors the reduction of blood pressure thanks to its anti-inflammatory power, a factor to take into account to keep the cardiovascular system in an optimal state. Magnesium also influences the nervous system, regulating its functions. Its deficit is related to the increased chances of suffering from depression, due to its ability to affect the brain and mood. There are studies which have shown that a treatment based on this mineral can help fight this disease.

Magnesium Regulates Muscle Contraction

At the muscle level, this mineral also helps regulate muscle contraction. It is the one that is responsible for assisting the muscles to relax after the calcium encourages them to contract. Thus, magnesium deficiency can lead to spasms and cramps in these tissues. Another of its fundamental functions is to help control blood glucose levels, especially in people with type 2 diabetes. This supports the management of insulin and the storage of sugar in cells as a source of energy. For all the above, it is clear that Magnesium is an elemental mineral for the body. It is very important to know which foods include the most of this mineral in their composition, which is why we compile them below.
